@rushiosan I think you underestimate the amount of work that needs to be done for it. For Link Cables, constant connections were necessary. A slight break would kill the connection. For Wireless, you need to allow for the dropping of packets transmitted and received.



Serebii commented on Nintendo Badge Arcade is Pinned Down For a 13t...:

I've spent ~£30 on getting the Pokémon badges in Japan. Over 160 Pokémon badges exist in Japan (

There's over 3,000 badges total so far in Japan. It rotates daily with new panels coming in every week from various Nintendo franchises.

@FragRed No. He said that to Japanese investors. This has been out in Japan for a year.



Serebii commented on Yo-Kai Watch Will Be The Next Pokémon, Claims...:

I'd like to see the source of their 95% market share claim. It's not true of games, it's not true of anime, and the Yo-kai Watch merchandise sales are down 75% on last year so I want to see what they are on about.



Serebii commented on The Pokémon Company Wants You To Enjoy Plenty...:

@Sakura There is actually a cool use. In the game, with the Move Tutor you can only teach Pokémon moves that you have obtained from Toy Pokémon in-game. These password Pokémon almost all have rare or powerful moves which opens them up for you to use.



Serebii commented on Guide: Everything You Need To Know About Poké...:

@Kit We're not 100% sure shinies are increased on it yet, but the amount of reports are hard to ignore. When you approach a Pokémon, you get a silhouette as seen in the screenshots rather than an image, so you don't know until the battle.



Serebii commented on It'll be Possible to Catch All 719 Pokémon Us...:

@ZenTurtle The concept of events is to go somewhere for something, and you get the Pokémon as a bonus. Distributing solely online would be counter to this idea. Not to say we don't get them here and there, but it's the concept and The Pokémon Company wish to continue that.

I doubt the Mythical Pokémon (Mew, Celebi, Jirachi, Deoxys, Phione, Manaphy, Darkrai, Shaymin, Arceus, Victini, Keldeo, Meloetta, Genesect, Diancie and the others) will be included in this.

Thankfully, you can complete your National Pokédex without those Pokémon.

Really though, this is nothing new. They always do this. When FRLG came out, you could then get all Pokémon between RS and FRLG. When HGSS came out, you could then get all Pokémon between DP and HGSS. When B2W2 came out, you could then get all Pokémon between BW and B2W2 (with help from the Dream World).



Serebii commented on Nintendo Patent Hints at Pokémon Standalone C...:

@BLPs This patent is just them registering the process that they used for NFC in Pokémon Rumble U. Every single thing about it is identical to how they run it. However, as that wasn't a much used game, people jumped on this news as if it was a breaking thing.

While they may use the contents of the patent again, what it's for already exists.



Serebii commented on Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire's File Si...:

@BlatantlyHeroic It has nothing to do with my "mindset", it has to do with me knowing Pokémon, the userbase of Pokémon, the fandom of Pokémon and the demographics of Pokémon.

@BLPs, I'm not saying the Wii U doesn't need it, I'm saying that, even if it was doing well, it'd be a horrific business decision. It would have a massively inflated budget and, due to the removal of a core aspect of Pokémon, would have severely diminished sales.
It's also not Nintendo's decision. While they own part of the franchise, they don't control the direction of it. That is done by Game Freak and Game Freak are the ones who have decided that, based on how Pokémon is, it will forever remain handheld for the main games. It's how the franchise is designed and a large part of why it sells.

Also, there has been nothing about a Conquest sequel other than a producer saying it would be nice.



Serebii commented on Weirdness: Slowpoke Reggae Exists, and it's Te...:

To clarify, this is the end of a Slowpoke's Paradise promotion that has been on the official Daisuki Club which focused all upon Slowpoke. It provided streams of episodes, wallpapers etc. and culminated in Slowpoke Day on August 10th.
